Moving Mountains is inspired by the ancient tale of a man, whom some called foolish, for seeking to move a mountain. Visually, Yang Fudong took inspiration from the masterful ink painting produced in the early 1940s by Xu Beihong (1895-1953). The work mirrors the spirit of endurance that Xu Beihong’s painting extolls, and it continues to illustrate the virtues of perseverance and willpower from the Chinese fable. Yet, Moving Mountains explores a new interpretation by taking the old metaphoric story of the foolish man as an outlet for recent musing.
